I couldn’t wait to get started using some of my new stash of
wool yarn last night!
After I’d moved the scallop edging to the bottom of the jar I preferred it far more.
I hope Naomi likes it. I know crochet and hand-made isn’t everyone’s cup-of-tea and for some it’s all a bit hokey…but I wanted to make her something to say THANKYOU.
The Stylecraft yarn is really nice to work with, yes I’d prefer Rowan and Debbie Bliss with no acrylic at all but it’s far too ££££ for playing around with. Until I win the lottery!
Pretty! How did your seam turn out? Just curious. :) Love the bird!
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to see Lucy’s Happy Flower. Now it is my turn to drop in to your blog. It is lovely. I LOVE you little bird. This bird is on my “to do” list. I also think your cosy is very pretty. I am SO envious, you are using Stylecraft yarn. I have been trying to find it here in the USA and haven’t had any luck. I love the colors they offer. I, like you, prefer to save the costlier yarns for special or perfected projects. I am now going to peek into your older posts.
Have a wonderful day.
Hi Barb, I live in the US and I got the Stylecraft yarn from Deramores. It’s a UK company but they have free shipping to the US. I bought the Lucy pack and I love it!
I just finished a crochet jar cover too!! I think the scallops on the bottom are a cool detail!
I agree on the money issue. The jar will make a wonderful present. Home made always means more to me.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I don’t have twitter. Yeah, I was just curious about the seam. Did you use the technique found in the tutorial you sent me? Hope you’re having a great week!
